    For some originality, are you able to re-write that in the form of a haiku, please?

    Luckily for most people, with the corona virus has come a drop in the AUD, AFTER they've been snow riding in Japan.
    It was around 73yen/AUD, today, it's 66.9!!

    And this is one reason to buy cash early when the rate is stable, before this type of financial problem happens..... In times of uncertainty, the AUD always goes down.

    ### Edit for clarity

    Unfortunately that is only good for us Aussies if we already have a buch of Yen and wish to convert back to AUD.
